I am 35 years old and have been a registered celebrant for 8 years. I am well presented, friendly, a great listener and always positive. If you would like to be married by someone who you can relate to and who guides you stress-free through the ceremony planning, then I am the right celebrant for you! 

I offer personalised ceremonies written by myself specifically to represent your relationship. My style is a modern relaxed ceremony with a couple of laughs if possible. Light without losing the significance of the day. I am often complimented by guests after ceremonies and asked how long I have been friends with the couple – being asked that question is my personal idea of success.

 I love last minute bookings! I’ve always enjoyed fast turnaround productions! So if you’re stressed out and worried that you may have left it too late – Don’t worry, you wont be growled by me. In fact, if you’re getting married within the next month I’ll help ease the stress with a $100 discount off my usual fee (if available).

I trained as an actor originally so have had professional vocal training and plenty of public speaking. I LOVE romance and am a creative writer so I always thought being a Celebrant would be a good fit for me… one day of course when I have silver hair and a fondness for large hats!

But when a close friend asked me to officiate for her Wedding seven years ago – I decided that the time had come earlier than expected.

I am not religious personally and believe passionately in authenticity. So when I speak I will be focused on your relationship with each other. However you are most welcome to include religious readings/vows that reflect your own (or your family’s) personal beliefs if you wish.

If you’d like to know more, or if you’d like to see that I’m the right fit for the two of you – I am happy to meet with you both (in person or via Skype), show you previous ceremonies I have written and chat about your options. Simply flick me an email with your wedding date and I’ll be in touch shortly.

Thank you so much for helping us to create the perfect wedding day. We couldn’t have wished for a better day and better ceremony. The ceremony went absolutely perfect and you did such a wonderful job. Thank you again for all your hard work over these last couple months and for being a part of our special day. Nic loved the Arnold part in my vows and I especially loved the back rub promise from him. I’m definitely holding him to that. – Nicolaus & Sarah

Yvette, thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony. You managed to put together the perfect words to capture our relationship and marriage. We had lots of feedback from guests who felt the same way. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house! A special thank you from me for having the tissues ready, you thought of everything! – Priya & Ayman
